EU Nickel Directive 76/769 94/27 and European Standard EN1811 EN 12471 EN 12472, REACH Annex XVII SVHC lists and Substances restricted under REACH

The EU directive 76/769 94/27 pos 28 concerns nickel and its compounds. The zip fasteners used in garments where nickel release is greater than 0,5 µg/cm2/week and which are intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin may not be used or products may not be placed on the market.

Salmi follows the REACH Annex XVII The Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) restricted under REACH.

Salmi makes zip fasteners for many purposes and most of these meet the requirements of the EU directive 76/769 94/27.

We also make zip fasteners which have greater nickel release than 0,5 µg/cm2/week for purposes where the nickel is not a criterion.

By choosing Salmi you know that you are getting the right product for your specific purposes.
